Clippers-Novans duel highlights Thanksgiving slate

November 20, 2012

Come the following Tuesday, the Villa Novans and Clippers will engage in a game of high importance – a semifinal-round clash that will take place at the respective home fields and determine the field for the Division II Super Bowl.

WOONSOCKET — A city man was arrested twice in a matter of hours this weekend, once for assaulting his girlfriend and a second time for violating an order to stay away from her.

But Monday morning many friends of the 303 Clinton St. facility were shocked when they saw a photo of the main reading room showing numerous shattered windows, the floor littered with shards of glass. A potted plant that got caught in the line of fire drooped sadly under the weight of the debris.
